Publisher's Summary

You're not to disturb, annoy or offend. They're walking on a knife edge out there, anything could tilt the balance.' Missing: one junior diplomat and 43 of the British Embassy's most confidential files. The timing is alarmingly significant: with neo-Nazi riots and radical student demonstrations, the threat to Germany's security is all too apparent. Britain's own Alan Turner is sent in, with instructions to tread carefully at all costs. But will he find the missing man and the files before the political situation erupts?
Kenneth Haigh stars as Alan Turner with Bernard Hepton as Rawley Bradfield in a fast-paced, explosive dramatisation of John le Carré's acclaimed spy story, dramatised by René Basilico.

Good but not classic Le Carre

Any additional comments?

Le Carre is a consistently adept storyteller and his earlier novels now have the added appeal of nostalgia, in this case the civil unrest of the late 1960s. This dramatisation is unusual for a Le Carre spy story both in terms of its protagonist and adversary. The protagonist comes across as far more working class than the usual public school Le Carre spies and the adversary, a resurgent neo-Nazi group, is far less plausible than the Moscow Centre characters we are familiar with from the other novels. But it’s an engaging story and is well worth a listen.
